...because we appreciate you!
As a small business, Maniacs Hobby understands the importance of our local community. For this reason, we strive to be involved in supporting our local community where we can. From participating in law enforcement events like National Night Out to providing a designated area to local hobby clubs for meet-ups, and sponsoring student incentives and free learning events for Broward county schools. We aim to be your favorite hobby shop for much more than our awesome selection and customer service.
As a proud supporter of making learning fun, we have partnered with Broward County Public School in their S.T.E.M. programs to provide activities for students, providing hands-on learning seminars in their schools at no cost to them. Giving students the opportunity to learn about radio control, the latest drone technology, and provide instructional demonstrations.
*Supporting Maniacs Hobby as a business allows us to continue our work in the community.* If you see the Maniacs trucks out in South Florida, you know it’s going to be a good time!
